Year 10 Girls Attend Women in STEM Taster Day

Some of our Year 10 girls attended a Virtual Taster Day for STEM subjects delivered by Selwyn College, Cambridge on the 17th February. The term STEM covers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. On the day, students were given a taste of what it is like to undertake study in these academic fields at the University of Cambridge. Among the speakers were: PhD student Francesca Firth; student natural scientist Rosie Lester; and schools’ liaison officer Grace Glevey.  

The girls were given a chance to attend subject lectures by Cambridge academics, and to learn from the admissions team about what happens at university and how to make A level choices.  

The girls who attended all have a passion for Science and Maths; women are often underrepresented in STEM subjects and careers, and this event also helps encourage girls to consider studying STEM subjects at University.  

Those who attended were:  

Rebecca Rae 

Maya Lily Naik 

Anjali Aravind 

Chloe Chambers 

Lottie Park 

Mariella Donaldson 

Anya Weerakoon 

Georgia Hughes 

Hope Jones 

Ella Lidster 

Anna Casey 

Sophie McKillop 

The students were enthused and said that the ‘taster day was brilliant and helped them think about their A level choices and careers’.
